Programme Summary

The BRCGS Storage and Distribution is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognised certification programme designed for companies that store and/or distribute food, consumer products and packaging material.

Certification is achieved by undertaking a third-party audit against Standard requirements by an accredited certification body (CB). BRCGS rates CBs on their technical performance and efficiency in customer service. FoodChain ID Certification is a highly rated CB providing accredited BRCGS certification globally.

The goal of the Global Standard for Storage & Distribution is to ensure that the quality and safety of products during storage and distribution are maintained.

The Standard is specifically designed for logistics operations dealing with Food, Packaging, and Consumer Products. It is fully flexible as operations can implement the full scope, or a scope relevant to their operation.

BRCGS Storage & Distribution Standard Issue 4 was published in November 2020.

BRCGS Storage & Distribution is beneficial to operations supplying companies with food, packaging and/or consumer products.

Food products are particularly subject to contamination or adulteration if not managed in a controlled and secure environment. Operations managing food products at different points in the food supply chain can achieve the necessary level of control by implementing a product safety management system in compliance with the Storage and Distribution Standard.

To support the variety of services often performed by storage and distribution operations, sites may expand their product safety management system to include activities such as wholesaling, product inspection and contract packing and achieve certification against the relevant module.
